Facebook Connect

Facebook Connect Plugin gives your visitors a simple way of signing in to your classifieds site without the need to go through a registration process with their Facebook details: full name and email. With no more than a couple of clicks, first-time visitors will become fully-fledged members on your site.

Facebook Connect Plugin is a big step towards socializing your site and making it more engaging for users. In a world where people are often pushed for time, the sign-up process is often off-putting for users and most of them will abandon your site at a step when they'll be offered to go through a registration procedure. The Facebook Connect Plugin helps you retain first time visitors by offering them to instantly gain access to your site without the need to fill out a registration form. The Facebook Connect Plugin allows you to set up two types of sign-up:

  • The first one is a one-click access for visitors whose member accounts require minimum information. With this option visitors, who don't wish to register, will be offered a Facebook Connect option, which is presented as a button next to a registration link in front end. By clicking it, the user will instantly join your site and his Facebook profile information will be used to create a user account in your site. This option works best for sites where visitors don't need to enter a lot of information to create their profiles.
  • The second option offers a two-step registration process for visitors, whose member accounts require more information from users. Once visitors gain access to your site through the Facebook Connect Plugin, they'll need to complete the second step of registration by entering more information.

To use the Facebook Connect Plugin, you will need a developer account with Facebook and an App ID to configure your site domain in back end. The set up process is straightforward and is described in detail in the Plugin's installation guide.
